The perfect way to start our evening was with Yesterday’s News. I’m a control freak, and both members were professional, well rehearsed and sounded great! I would book them again in a heartbeat and I’m so excited I went with my gut and booked them.

This band was so easy to work with and so incredibly accommodating with our event. We have an older crowd, who doesn't want the music too loud, but loves to dance. That was my request, and they played exactly per my request. Their communication before the event was excellent, and we plan to hire them again for future parties at our club. Thank you for your professionalism and helping to make our event so successful! Tracey A.

Yesterday's News was amazing and I would not hesitate to hire them again. I hired Yesterday's News for my sons 11th birthday party. My son is really into the 1950's and that was the theme for the party. My son was able to look at the list of songs that Yesterday's News offers to sing and he picked out about 24 songs. The band arrived early to set up and played and sang the songs chosen as if they had originally came up with the songs. Everyone at the party LOVED Yesterday's News. The kids had a blast and the grown ups felt like they were back in 1950. The band was very professional and accommodating. I could not be more pleased.

Yesterday's News was awesome! We really enjoyed having them perform at my wife's 40th birthday celebration. They are very personable and accommodating. They will personalize the playlist to your preference. They really livened up the party and got people dancing and cutting a rug! Thanks so much!

Everyone loved Yesterdays News! They were very easy to work with and provided their song list in advance so that we could pick and choose exactly what we wanted to hear at our event. They were fantastic! We would definitely hire them again.

Art and Yesterdays News were amazing. Extremely professional, talented, responsive, and perfect for our event or any event. I only had them for a couple hours at our company event, but I could have listened to them all day. We had a Hawaiian theme and they were so thoughtful to put an island-feel playlist together and included a steel drum. The live music was wonderful and I will easily contact them again for another event.

It was a pleasure (and quite fun!) to host this musical duo. Arrangements and communications were easy and prompt. Art tailored the song selections to our group. He gave short introductions before most of the songs, which added to the interest. Both Art and Gordon are quite personable and had a good rapport with the audience. Our group had a very good time, whether they were dancing or just listening and clapping along. Highly recommended!!

It's been over two weeks since I had my party and people are still talking about this band. I really liked their sound when I heard the demo and knew I was going to find a way to incorporate them into our party. That turned out to be a great decision. These guys were the consummate professionals that I was anticipating. My expectations were very high from the start and as you can see from my ratings they delivered in every category. I actually don’t know how they could have possibly been better in any category. All I can say is this: Listen to the demo, if you like their sound, hire them. You will not regret it. You'll be patting yourself on the back for doing it.
